Overview: Have you ever thought that the number one can mean more than one? This book explores that thought by showing that some things we say are one really have more items in them, like ONE baseball team has NINE players or ONE forest has LOTS of trees. It gives a number of different examples of how ONE can be MORE. Mommy Bookworm's Thoughts: This book has very vibrant illustrations, which would appeal to various ages of children. There is a conflict of reading level and/or appropriate ages for the book.

In this unique children's counting book, Miriam Schlein presents a seemingly simple and straightforward text that is yet conceptually advanced, presenting a variety of ways in which one can be more than one (. one pair of shoes or one dozen eggs). There are many teachable moments for young children as well as opportunities for vocabulary development (. flock of birds, school of fish).

Can one be more than one? Yes, when there are two shoes in one pair, nine players on one baseball team, and twelve eggs in one dozen

Can one be more than one? Yes, when there are two shoes in one pair, nine players on one baseball team, and twelve eggs in one dozen. One family can be two or three or four or more people, and one ocean "has billion/and trillions/and skadillions/of drops of water"-but they are still one family and one ocean. Schlein (Big Talk, 1990, et. shows that one doesn't have to be but always is one, and makes an intriguing puzzle for children to ponder

My 18 month old just loves this book. Perhaps it is because we started reading this book and learning how to holding up "one" finger at the same time.

Everyone knows that one is one. But can ONE be more than one? Absolutely! ONE PAIR is always two; ONE WEEK is seven days; and ONE DOZEN is always twelve. My 18 month old just loves this book.

I love this book as it teaches math concepts in ways that are visual and kids can grasp!!! One can be more than one, one pair is 2, one sea is millions of water drops...

Mommy Bookworm's Thoughts: This book has very vibrant illustrations, which would appeal to various ages of children. There is a conflict of reading level and/or appropriate ages for the book. Personally, I think that 2- to 3-year-old children would enjoy the book because of the illustrations, but think that the reading level is more for ages 4+. I think the book is interesting in that it tries to teach how when we say ONE it may sometimes have more parts to it. However, I also feel it is a little confusing especially if you're trying to teach it to a little child.

Dahlia Bookworm's Thoughts: I did not like the book because it was not very interesting since it had facts that I already knew. I can easily read it. I would recommend it to younger kids though.

Daisy Bookworm's Thoughts: I could easily read it by myself and only needed help with two or three words. I like the pictures and colors. I thought it was a little boring though. I think it tries to teach kids that the number one can be more than one too.
